>> yeah, that's one of the stories. i actually convinced my parents to let me leave home at 14. because i was, i was -- you know, back then there were these radical priests that were against the war, the berrigan brothers and the priests were cesar chavez, farm workers, and all of that. and so, i was kind of inspired by them, and so i thought i >> jimmy: did you -- were you very religious? do you go to church all the time? >> yeah, yeah. i was. >> jimmy: did you serve mass? were you an altar boy? >> yeah, yeah. were you? >> jimmy: me, too. yeah. >> yeah, yeah. >> jimmy: i actually wanted to be a priest as well. >> right, wow. >> jimmy: yeah. >> how come you didn't go? >> jimmy: i think i just hit puberty, and -- >> yeah.

[ laughter ] >> jimmy: wait.
so, i mean, how did you get elected? >> i got elected because, again, they had just given 18 year olds the right to vote. and i figured i could get every stoner between the ages of 18 and 25 to come out and vote, you know, i would win. and they were so afraid of me, the people in town, when i ran -- they ran six other adults against me, not realizing that they would split the adult vote, and i would win with the stoner vote. >> jimmy: oh, my god. [ cheers and applause ] >> i came in first place. >> jimmy: very good. very good. just throwing out bags of funyuns to everybody. >> yeah, right, right. >> jimmy: you must be asked, would you ever run for office again? >> no, i don't -- no, i think -- i served my time.

>> so, if you ran for senate in new york, i could run for michigan. then, we could join al franken on the floor of the senate. >> jimmy: it would be super fun. >> it would be so cool. like, c-span's ratings would just, like -- you know? >> jimmy: spike. absolutely, yeah. yeah, those sitcoms aren't doing well over on c-span. yeah, they're really rough. >> but, if we just made the senate funny -- >> jimmy: yeah. >> -- at least they'd be doing something. >> jimmy: do you -- what do you think about this whole occupy wall street thing that's going on? >> well, i'm a huge supporter if it. it's been something i've been wishing for for a long time. >> jimmy: yeah. >> and i wondered, you know, just how long would it take before people decided to get up and get involved and say, i can't take this anymore. how many people's lives have really been ruined by these banks and corporate america? so many jobs lost. so many people. so i think that -- and what's great about this movement is that it's just spread like wildfire. and there's no leader. there's no organization. there's no dues to pay. it's just people just -- i've been traveling the country,
and they just -- people just have just set up their own occupies in even the smallest towns. i've was out in -- traveling across nevada and california last week. there's an occupy nevada city, an occupy grass valley. there's, like, 400 people showing up in this -- not a very large town. and there's 400 in fayetteville, arkansas. occupy fayetteville? [ light laughter ] you know? >> jimmy: wow. >> i mean, it's just -- >> jimmy: you think that it would be more effective if they had a leader, if there was one leader? >> no, no. i think that's why it's been so successful because -- i think the old model of -- where we just all kind of sit back and let leaders, you know, do it. like, let sierra club take care of the environmental issues. you know, let this activist or this -- you know, that doesn't work. it doesn't. it only works when every american considers themselves a leader, and where they go out and talk to their neighbors, people at church, or the pta. get involved, and, you know, it's a democracy. this is not a spectator sport. everybody has to be off the bench. everybody off the bench and getting involved.
when we do that, we won't have to be complaining anymore about oh, wall street's doing this or the congressmen aren't doing that. because we're going to be the ones in charge, if we all participate. >> jimmy: that's true, yeah. [ cheers and applause ] there's a lot of college kids. i think, it's a lot of -- it's a big college movement, too. are you surprised at how young these -- >> no, not at all. this whole thing really is ultimately being driven by young people because it's their future that's been stolen from them. the bailout, these wars. to pay this stuff off, the grandchildren will are going to be paying this off. i mean, if you're 22 right now, you've got a student debt of 30, 40, 50, some $60,000. >> jimmy: i remember. yeah, just trying to get even financial aid when i was in college, it was like -- it's crazy. >> no, it is. and you leave college, at 22, in shackles. i mean, you really have this huge debt that you've got to start paying off. and when i was of that age, when you're 22, it was time to go and just, you know, do what you want to do. find yourself. figure out what you're going to do in life. take a trip somewhere.
you know, it was -- now, you can't do that, and i worry about -- that we're se whole generation out there. they got to get a job right away, and they got to pay off this debt. instead of, you know, what great band are we going to miss now because they couldband? or what great invention or discovery won't happen because -- see, that comes from when you're young. and we're taking that away from them by just saying, you know, you're screwed at 22, and you'll be paying this off for the next 20 years. and at that point they've got you, so -- [ cheers and applause ] >> jimmy: that's very interesting. i know you're the author now, but would you consider going back to make another documentary? maybe about occupy wall street or any of the -- >> not about -- made -- i've been making documentaries about wall street and corporate america for 20 years. and i said, at the end of the last film, i was wrapping crime scene tape around the stock exchange. >> jimmy: yeah, i do remember that. yeah. >> and i took a brinks truck over to goldman sachs to get the money back for everybody's
pension funds and whatever. and it was just like -- i was just like me doing it. and it was okay. it was funny and all that. but, i said at the end of the movie that that's the end of -- i'm not going to do this anymore unless i see a movement of people, you know, do their thing and everybody get involved. i just was tired of being the poster boy over at fox news and rush limbaugh. you know, they attack me, and what i had hoped for, now what i see happening is, there's a million me's. there's a million you's. there's a million. everybody is going to have their say now. i'm so optimistic and hopeful about this movement. >> jimmy: that's good. that's great. well, i have -- we actually have -- we've got some interesting footage of you on a debate recently, and we'll talk about that when we get back. more with michael moore when we return, you guys.

thank god i had a couple cocktails in me. not that i -- [ laughter ] -- you know, the buzz -- because it took a couple seconds to realize what was happening, which was a good thing. and we were trapped in the elevator for about, you know, almost 30 minutes, in between the second and first floor. >> jimmy: and here's what -- it really scared me. because there's a little gap between the first and second floor where you can actually see the floor. >> yes. >> jimmy: and you all crawled out that little gap? >> we crawled out the gap. we had to play -- >> jimmy: but, what if the elevator turned back on? >> well, this is -- this is the image that i've been living with for the last two weeks, is that idea playing elevator roulette. where, you know, who's going to be the one that steps out and loses his leg? >> jimmy: i would go out first. >> i was saying it was going to be seth herzog. that's who i thought was going to lose his leg. >> jimmy: you guys, seth herzog is a warm-up comedian that warmed up the show for you guys tonight. that's -- [ cheers and applause ] seth was on -- seth was on the elevator with you. >> well, a little back story. seth and i also -- he's one of my oldest friends. we went to camp together. >> jimmy: he is pretty old. he is pretty old. >> he's pretty old. [ light laughter ]
i've know seth, you know, since 10 years old, so, if you're going to go down an elevator, you definitely want the guy you went to theater camp with by your side. [ light laughter ] >> jimmy: yeah. was he making jokes and trying to be funny? >> you know, he was doing his bit. what were you doing zog? >> seth: well, when we first got stuck -- when an elevator gets stuck you realize who people are very fast because everyone starts freaking out. and i said, "hey guys, we need to figure out who we're going to eat first." [ light laughter ] it got a much better laugh here than it did in the elevator. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: i would have been so mad if he said that. he's making jokes. >> there was slightly uncomfortable laughter. there was some people -- i laughed. >> jimmy: well, the worst thing is that -- when -- did you see this on october 30th you were on "good morning america." >> seth: i was on "good morning america." >> jimmy: doing a reenactment of the elevator crash that you were on. look at this clip. this is insane. >> seth: oh, my god. >> they're safer than riding in an airplane, they're safer than driving your car or being on a bus. >> but, tell that to seth herzog. [ light laughter ] >> seth: my biggest fear was that i was going to die with people more famous than me. [ laughter ] >> jimmy: that is a real clip.
[ cheers and applause ] you didn't even re-enact it good, and it happened to you. that's how bad of an actor you are. [ laughs ] it actually happened, you're like, "hey, what?" >> seth: i wanted to make sure that everyone knew i was really feeling it -- in the elevator. >> my greatest fear was just to die, and zog's was, his greatest fear was to die with people more famous than him. >> seth: yeah. >> jimmy: i was just really upset that both of you guys were on there. i'm so happy -- >> thank you. >> jimmy: -- that you're here. i was really worried about you, buddy. >> seth: yeah, it got a good tweet. >> thank you very much. [ laughter ] appreciate that. >> jimmy: i didn't -- you know what's funny? mxtrjoshcharles didn't even mention the elevator at all. [ light laughter ] >> go figure. >> jimmy: he's really into eating cookies, though. he loves cookies. >> loves cookies and "the phantom menace" was overrated. >> jimmy: he loves it, yeah, yeah, yeah. >> no, it's overrated, right? >> jimmy: is that what he said? >> i don't know. i don't know, you tell me, what did he say? >> jimmy: i don't know, i just follow him, he's funny. [ laughter ] he says, "lol" a lot. >> yeah. >> jimmy: he says, "lol" and he likes to be re-tweeted a lot. how many followers do you have
